The Border Wall is a hotbed of political debate and engagement that we’re not going to get into. What we are going to talk about is the ingenious project that Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello created that uses the wall as a fulcrum for bright pink seesaws slotted through it. A decade ago, Rael wrote the book Borderwall as Architecture in which he described the very project that would be brought to life in bright neon pink by Taller Herrería of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico this year. As Rael put it when he shared the project on Instagram, “children and adults were connected in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side.” This the kind of fun and playful activism we can all get behind.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
